Why I Love

Santa Clara F

or ten years my husband Jake and I have lived in many different southern Utah cities including: Hurricane, La Verkin, Washington, and St. George. We fell in love on the Tuacahn Amphitheatre stage, so the dramatic red rock canyons and starry night skies have always felt like home! We are performing arts teachers (dance and drama) at Vista School in Ivins, so we had always hoped to live closer to work. We were so blessed to find our "forever home" here in Santa Clara amidst our house search in the middle of a pandemic! I am absolutely in love with the beautiful trees, small-town feel, quaint businesses, friendly neighbors, and festive holidays! Being surrounded by such beloved heritage and history gives me a strong sense of pride for our new hometown. My favorite thing to do with my three energetic boys is ride our bikes down to Santa Clara town hall to hear the bells and watch the hourly Glockenspiel!

Why I Love I

Mesquite

have lived in Mesquite since 1994, graduating from Virgin Valley High School. Mesquite is where I met the love of my life, we have been married for 23 years, we have three wonderful children and one grandchild. Mesquite has been a great city to raise our children. There are a lot of healthy activities and no big city issues. With Las Vegas just an hour away it’s the perfect getaway. I have been in the food and beverage industry for 28 years. I started from the ground up and now I am the Director of Food and Beverage at the 1880 Grille at Conestoga Golf Club. Mesquite is a great place to call home, with the golf courses and fine restaurants in town. It’s also the perfect city to retire. ~Oscar Cuellar
